My Background

While growing up in a family with two generations working in the travel industry I never anticipated a career in the industry myself. In fact, I think I tried to steer away from it. After graduating with two degrees, one in journalism and the other in studio art I moved to Chicago to start a career. After a few different jobs I realized that the family business back in my hometown of Cedar Falls may be a great place to start my career. It has been about 10+ years later since I packed my bags and headed back home to work at Humble Travel. I haven't looked back since! Since then I have had wonderful opportunities helping many clients create new memories on their journeys. I have assisted many honeymooners plan that first very special trip together. However, I really enjoy helping plan special surprises! One client announced he was going to propose on a special 3 week getaway to Australia and New Zealand. I worked closely with a vendor to arrange this special moment. Needless to say it worked out wonderfully. Additionally, I have experience in leisure travel, groups and incentive, multi-generational trips, destination weddings, honeymoons and more. I enjoy working with my clients and getting to know them so I can help them to have the best travel experience possible. I can't wait to work with YOU!

I was very pleased with the concern for detail on helping us plan our Alaska trip and Cruise. We have never been on a Cruise ship so Annie took a lot of time making sure we had the cabin that we would not feel movement. To see I had a window on plane to see out of. To make sure we didn't over extend ourselves, as to not enjoy ourselves. She explained lots of details of the trip that we wouldn't of know till we were there. We would defiantly want to use Annie again..Shes a real keeper. Sweet lady.

We (Blair Boyd & Richard Ganem) had a wonderful time on our trip to Los Cabos, B.C.S, Mexico! Our resort was wonderful and everything we wanted in an all-inclusive resort. We were able to enjoy relaxing times by the pool and beach as well as venture out on excursions like swimming with dolphins, zip lining, and whale watching! Annie was wonderful in helping us prepare for our trip and answering any questions we had about traveling to Mexico. She was particularly helpful in deciding what to do with my name on my passport (as far as changing it to my married name or waiting until after the trip). We truly enjoyed working with Annie and plan to do so again in the future!

Costa Rica

Good Things: RIU Palace was fantastic. Great food, staff, facilities and atmosphere. Not so good: The guanacaste area is so far away from where anything is going on, it takes a long time to get to an event. To complicate the issue, Swiss Travel will only go somewhere if/when they have a full bus. For example, we flew in to the airport, went through customs, grabbed our bag and met Swiss Travel outside the airport to take us to RIU Palace. We had to wait 45 minutes for other passengers to arrive from other flights so the bus going to RIU Palace was full enough to justify the trip (40 minutes). So we arrived at the airport around 12:30 pm and got to RIU Palace at about 3:30. Also, we went on one day long (combo) excursion that included zip lining, water slide, lunch, horse ride, hot springs. These activities took about 4 hours, we spent the other 8 hours either waiting for a ride, or riding on the bus. I thought the bus went directly to the area, that's not the case, we had to

Annie was very knowledgeable and helpful through the entire booking process! She did a lot of research for us and helped us choose the perfect destination for our honeymoon. She was always quick to follow up and answer any questions we had. She even met with us before the trip to go over our documents and explain everything to us in detail. Highly recommend working with Annie at Humble Travel!!

As always, a pleasure to have Annie. She and her assistant came to my rescue to help me work through some of the more tedious details of a Spain journey. It was our first trip to Spain. She organized Eurail passes and secured seat assignment for multiple long trains. She also found us an awesome family friendly hotel in Barcelona for the night which was perfect in location and amenities. The tour she organized for us from Seville to Cordoba was a main highlight for us. She always finds us great deals and bonuses so we make the most of our travel dollar. We already have our next trip booked and are working on another. We love our Annie!

Jamaica was amazing!!!! The weather was great, and the resort and staff were awesome!!!! The room was perfect. Thank you Annie for getting everything organized. Because of Annie's planning the trip went smoothly with the flights and the drive to the resort, granted it was sort of hard to get used to the driving in Jamaica. It was definitely hard to get motived to come back to Iowa's weather when it was 85 degrees there. We want to go back!! We apricated Annie's attention to detail and we were very pleased with our stay at Sandals. We highly recommend booking a vacation through Annie and Humble Travel!!

We have worked with Annie on a couple of previous trips, so she was familiar with us and what we were seeking. She presented us with alternatives and reviewed the pros and cons of each leaving the final decision to us without any pressure. She was then proactive in making reservations for us, collating trip information for our three families. She met and reviewed the information with us just prior to departure. We were quite satisfied with her helpful service, and would recommend her to others.
